Egmont Fonden Pige

The Egmont Foundation

Egmont is a foundation.

We do well. We do good.

All of Egmont is a foundation. We have no owners, but a vital commitment to do well and do good. Giving back to society, we create a better life for vulnerable children and young people in Denmark and Norway. All Egmont’s profits are reinvested in our media businesses and donated to support charitable initiatives.

The charitable activities
The Egmont Foundation’s charitable activities are based on social indignation and empathy. The foundation was established in 1920 with the aim to alleviate the consequences for children and families living in poverty. Today, the aim is to safeguard young people against “modern poverty” – the lack of learning and life skills. Our focus is on the approx. 15% who are at risk of not completing an upper secondary education.

2030 objective

We are working to ensure that by 2030 all young people are able to complete an upper secondary education.

What we support

The Egmont Foundation provides three main types of support: support for initiatives targeted at children and young people at risk, direct donations to vulnerable children and their families, and support for talent development in the film industry through Nordisk Film Fonden.

Focus on three key problems

We support initiatives targeted at children and young people at risk with focus on three, often interlinked, key problems: 1) Inadequate parenting skills, 2) Learning difficulties, and 3) Low self-esteem. 

A Helping Hand

The Egmont Foundation provides individual support through partnerships in Denmark and Norway with organisations that are directly in contact with children and young people at risk. Our initiatives also include donations, incubator grants and “big bets”.

Nordisk Film Fonden

Nordisk Film Fonden is an independent part of the Egmont Foundation with its own objectives and focus areas. This foundation supports talents and encourages the great film story.
